emoticon Hi My granddaughter, her husband, and her two children for a combination thanksgiving and Christmas time. It is such a joy to see a baby about to walk, and my autistic grandson learning to talk again. David is such a miracle. He responds more and more. tells jokes, wants hugs, talks almost too much some times, LOL, He is eight and didn't talk or respond much for about six years so now, we are rejoicing with each victory.

Today he got upset because he wanted to shrink and not grow big because he wants to go through the pet door.. Made my day.

I gave Faith her embroidered pillowcases of old fashioned ladies. She seems to enjoy them.

Woke up this morning to blowing wind and snow coming down (blowing sideways that is!). Not going to church this morning. I'm just getting over bronchitis. Still coughing and wanting to stay warm and cozy to keep from getting a relapse.

Will watch the live stream online of the service, though. Don't want to miss the next chapter of our pastor's sermon series.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

Carol - Hope you had a great time at your Christmas party!
The Mr. & Mrs. Wright story game is a lot of fun - I have played that many times when we did exchanges in our TOPS group.

Tonight is our guild Christmas Party and my last event as the President of the guild, 2 years running. Looking forward to sitting in the audience next year. We are exchanging gifts. 3 fat quarters and a notion in a brown paper lunch bag. You have to decorate the bag and the best ones will win a prize of a poinsettia! I am reading the Mr and Mrs WRight story to pass the gifts. Can't wait, should be a lot of fun. Everytime you say the word right, pass to the right, left , pass to the left. So much fun! Carol

Son comes home from college Thurs. Still don't know where we will put him. -- The other son living at home & going to school & working full time has spread himself out between 2 rooms. Kind of a conundrum to sort through in 48 hrs! (especially since he's hardly ever home)

Made a batch of salmon patties for dinner tonight. -- Then made sandwich filling for lunches.

I'm already starting plans for next year! I"m going off the guild board as Pres for 2 years but I've committed to helping the charity chair next year with making quilts and inspiring others as well. This past year I did a round robin that everyone loved and I plan on doing another for charity this next year. I am working on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt. Half way there to finish the first clue. I remembered today that I will be receiving house blocks from the guild members as a gift and thought, why not use them for the backing on my mystery quilt instead of making 2 quilts! IT will be reversible and fit my bed! And it will be really scrappy! Carol

On the note of "reducing stuff"... I think a backhoe could do the job at our house! Grrr.r.r.r.r

I have 2 young adult males that are finishing college before moving out. That would make a BIG difference. And then a teen daughter who is managing herself fairly well. (It IS really rewarding to see the things taught as part of the growing up process, It IS taking root & the kids ARE applying those things to their lives. Just takes time...)

I can not believe it is December 1st.

...so will look for ways to make the days meaningful instead of stressful. Not exactly helpful to have the car needing a $500 repair job right now. Fortunately, I have a back-up until my son arrives home from college in 2 wks.

Jolette - wonderful news

Carol - great job on the quilt.

We're still in reduce mode, painting and cleaning our house. I have a big pile ready to be donated. Haven't left the house in 3-4 days - so today I hope to get out just a bit - maybe head to the gym this evening.

I know you are proud of him Jolette, my husband read the lessons today and did very well. Even the pastor commented on it. On another note, I had made a log cabin blue and white quilt and donated it to my church to raise funds for more quilting. It was successful and the Pastor's wife won it. Carol

Have a blessed day.,

A belated "Happy Thanksgiving" to all. We traveled to my sister's for Thanksgiving (usually a 3 hour drive, but it took us 4.5 because of a collision). Neither of us have children, but she has an extended family so we had a 20-something all the way up to an 80-something. It was lots of fun.

Now for the Hanukkah and Christmas holidays.

I need to start a thread on t-giving mishaps. I was so proud of myself, fixing the turkey and stuffing it and getting it into the oven right on time. Unfortunately, the broken oven knob got put on backward or something because I discovered after 4 hours of cooking, the broiler was on the whole time instead of bake! No wonder the breast got black on top! My husband finally figured it out. Everything was ready except the turkey and my sister and her husband were waiting for us to bring it over to them as she hasn't been well. So I cut off both breasts as they seemed done, and cooked for another 15 minutes and left the rest in the oven. Everything was delcious in spite of it! This also explains why my pecan pie didn't bake. It burned on the top and was still juicy in the middle.
Now, I am a really good cook and this should have all come out right, but I had this feeling from the beginning that something was going to happen to the oven.
When we got home, I finished off the rest of the bird, minus the breasts for another hour. Perfectly cooked and tasty!
The best part was, because we had prepared everything and put into covered casseroles there was very little clean up. We stopped at the garage fridge and put all the casseroles away, ready for today. Might try this again. Carol

emoticon From now on, we will just do a turkey breast for Thanksgiving. It was such a better deal for size, cooking, and left-over "mess". (I always hate feeling like I'm wasting food, but cleaning up a turkey carcass is NOT my idea of "fun"!)
It was a pleasant family day. Even made 4 pies! emoticon

emoticon HAPPY THANKSGIVING from me too. The kids brought over dinner and it was scrumptious and it was so nice to see the teenager boys to brighten up the day.

I sam breathing as little easier so may recover. LOL I did have a minor hemorrhage from my nose and had a little scare, but it stopped and I am just fine and dandy now,.

It is so nice and warm and the kids stayed with me so Arnie could take his little buddy, our dog Scruffy, out for a walk. I sometimes I feel like I am being babysat, but I am not in too good a shape so I understand. How blest I am with my wonderful family and my friends.

Have a joyful day. Jo

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving to all! turkey's in the oven, haven't cooked one in about 20 years! But you never forget, thanks to my mother! I have about 4 hours to sew or whatever. We are taking the meal over to my sister's. She can't go out or prepare the meal and so we are sharing. Called my son in North Carolina and they bought their whole turkey dinner from Fresh Market for $100! Includes two pies, all the sides and fixings. What a deal! Wish we were there! Carol

With all those charms, you can always make a tossed nine patch. I love that one because it goes to fast, I have been unable to do much quilting because my shoulder doesn't work to good. AT least I can still embroider.

A storm is blowing right now as I sit here and it is cold, brrrr.

Cleaning out my stash again, and this time cutting charm blocks into 2.5", 3", 3.5", 4", 4.5", 5", 6" and 6.5" and strips.

I have NO idea what I'm going to do with these charms once I've gone through all my buckets. I do seem to have a TON of 5" charms though.

I was pleased to tour the various booths at a quilt show today. (I don't believe I've ever been to a show just for quilts.) I was also pleasantly surprised at the courteous treatment by the high end sales people (think electronic sew.machines & long arm). They actually listened and responded specifically to my questions. -- Nevertheless, I'm still a LONG ways away from making any major purchase!

Finished quilting and binding my last outstanding quilt. Plan to do some more blocks for my next quilt which I've included in our quilt mystery box swap. When I'm done I hope to have 30+ blocks to make another quilt for my wedding inventory of nieces and nephews.

My DH sold all his old LPs - as part of our decluttering. We have 3 rooms downs - painted, and cleaned 8 more to go as we continue to get our house ready for market.

Jolette - wonderful news on the new branch in your family. I am big on generational photos. They are wonderful to find years later and great memories. You should be sure to take one with your new great grand. She will always have it as a special memory of you.

Carol - I haven't given up. I know the fabric is out there - its just a matter of do I want to break down and buy a yard or 2 when I only need a 1/4 of a yard.

No rush. In massive decluttering mode. Our local high school is taking our 3 aquariums (10, 20 and 55 gallon) and their stands. I tried to sell them but there was no interest so I contacted the HS and they jumped at the donation. We're off to sell my husbands old LPs and my daughter has claimed all of the beanie babies to sell. I think between the trash can, the donations and the recycle bucket we're getting rid of 2/3 of our stuff. No complaints. It's amazing how much you collect living in the same house for so many years. But there are still a few items DH won't part with.

Jolette, congrats on the new GGdaughter! So glad you are getting around. Ginny, if you don't find the fabric, you can do a block reminiscent of the state. Will have to research that part, or embroider them. Carol

Wow! How wonderful is that. Were you not looking for that material or wondering where to buy it?

It is so nice when everyone shares things they no longer want/need. It helps each other and everyone has fun doing it.

I went to my quilting guild tonight and brought a bunch of old books for people to look through and keep. I came home with a ton of fabric they were distributing. All either 5" or 6" blocks. Plus a great collection of 6" squares of US state license plates. I just went through them all and am missing 8 states. I'm hoping I can locate the fabric so I can get the full 50 states.

Quilting group got cancelled today. A most unusual snow arrived in NOVEMBER. For the Pacific North"wet" I don't remember snow this early on the valley floor. If we get any, it would typically be in January.

Anyway, it's pretty, but cold. I'm so very glad DD arrived safely and that the incessant, howling wind has given itself a rest! Time to enjoy some time together!

Sleepless night as the wind howled & broke branches & trees. Worried about outside livestock. -- DD has had major issues in getting home from TX (road trip). Seems like a LOT has gone wrong... She may get in at 2am Wed. & then I need to go fetch her.
Sigh...

Sorry to hear that your quilting group got cancelled. A similar thing happened to our radio club at the beginning of the month, except that we didn't know about it until we got to the site, so we had our meeting out in the parking lot. Good thing there was an almost full moon that night!

Every family has a "story"... sorry yours is frustrating.

Got a call late Wed. that they were having to cancel our quilting group that meets on Thurs. Somebody else is using the facility, and I guess they didn't want to bother to let us know ahead of time. If we hadn't called and checked, a dozen of us would have shown up and not been able to do our work. Kind of annoying that people can't be more courteous to others...

Have to fly to PA end of this week to go to court with my daughter; she is fighting for custody of her 16 yr old son. Why do the courts make you jump hoops when the other person just doesn't care at all? She did the domestic relations hearings, but he never showed, so now to court, he will not show again, or will call with a lame excuse to push it to another day just to cause her to miss more work!
He hasn't paid support in 4 years, and the state he lives in is still trying to see how much he should pay.,.....it has been 2 months, do they think the kid eats air? This has been a 4 year struggle. He just up and left and disappeared. We finally found him, right where we told the courts and process servers he was now we get this foot dragging going on.

Sorry for venting, but my stress level is so high and I am just eating everything in sight!

Well, I am now two units of blood and feeling much better, almost like I may make it after all.
My blood count was really down to 6.9 and felt terrible. I spent the last few days in the hospital, but have lost about 7 lbs the last three days. oh, it was horrible, not sleep for three days . It must be helping, my managed to eat dinner tonight without gagging. (oops, sorry for being so explicit, but food had been very difficult lately). I am embroidering today. the first time in three weeks because it took so much energy to do anything like , hmm, work on embroidery? Well, I AM feeling better and want to thank you for the prayers and caring.

Jolette-praying for a turn around in your health!

I am off to work and will be going to a quilting retreat after work, but they usually have internet, so I will be able to check in. I have my food packed so I am not tempted to eat unhealthy fare. I have my exercise planned (therapy exercises+walks on the beach during non-working time. Hope to start/finish 4 baby quilts.

I went to the local quilt shop today to look for some fabric. I've been making the Jumping Jacks blocks which look like the British Flag and I wanted to see if they had a particular fabric. Turns out his fabric is 4 yrs old at least so no luck there. I left with nothing. Wasn't I good? I decided that I wasn't ready to find fabric for borders and backing just yet. Carol

Carol - simplifying that celtic mystery quilt a bit. Finished my 100 chevron pairs and now just have to finish those blocks.

This quilt has been interesting to do but so many pieces. As its intended for my inventory to pull for nieces and nephews wedding quilts and I have 30+ of them - simplification is definitely needed otherwise the others may never get their quilts. emoticon

Hi! My Name is Sherre! I love to cut fabric into little pieces and put them back together. I love to pet fabric! I never have a big enough stash. I save scraps you never know when you might need it.

A few years ago my mom(also a quilter) said If I were you age I would buy a long arm and start a business. I Have worked in a doc office part time for 20 something years and had been asking myself what I was going to do when I grow up well It seems long arm quilting was my answer. I started a year and a half ago and have loved ever min of it!!!

So that's my quilting side my weight side!~!~!~ I started sparks quit a few years ago and did really great got to my lowest weight ever then an injury and medical issues with my kids sent me into a tail spin of rotten eating no exercise. Hence I put on lots of weight. I need to face the mirror, the scale, and the treadmill and get my mind and bottom moving!


Sherre!

I know I Can do Any Thing I want. I just have to do it!!!
I have the power to make My life my own.
IT'S TIME TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!!

I am motivated to make the changes needed to make the scale move!

NOW IS THE TIME!

I am still embroidering but now trying how to use the sewing machine with a bum shoulder.

I really do working with my hands, doing embroidery right now, I find myself humming as I work, kind of like taking a shower. LOL

Have a joyful day

Hi Ophelia. You are right, life does get in the way. Maybe you could start a small project that you can pick up or leave whenever you need to. I have several of those on the go myself!!

You are only as happy as you allow yourself to be.

Hi Ophelia, I am sure you will soon enjoy your quilting and welcome to others who want to be healthier.

Whew, I have spent 1 hour and 47 minutes with Amazon trying to register my dh's Kindle because he decimated the other one. If I were any denser they have now met me. Wow, was the lady patient.

Hello everyone, I am an old "new" quilter. I discovered quilting when I lived in Idaho, but I have been gone 5+ years now, and although I would love to go back to it, it seems like life always gets in the way. So, instead, I come on your team's page and see what you are accomplishing!

It's nice when husbands help display our work! I just need to make more smaller projects. No more wall space for bed quilts size!

Just2ofus, I wish you were closer so I could show you how to make a pillowcase where all the raw edges are inside the seams. It is easy peasy once you get the hang of it!!
Yesterday DH helped me clean and rearrange my sewing room. Getting it ready for when my sewing machine returns from spa day (clean and tune up at dealers). I can hardly wait to get back to work.
82 baby quilties are ready for labels and then off to the hospital!!
Won't be making any more for a while!

Today is a ME day. SEW, sew, sew. At 10:00 a Mary Kay rep is coming to freshen up my face. Feeling blah looking. Hubby goes to work and then goes to the FSU/Citadel football game with a friend. All by myself all day as he works earlier. I must go to the grocery store as we are vacant in the fridge. I'd rather be sewing. I'll be sewing 2.5 inch squares and HST again today. I might put that aside and do something else for a while. Carol

Today, I've set 4 appmts for next week already and several more to call. Guess Sept is decorating season. I am still in vacation mode so after this post, I am heading down the hall to set up my clean sewing machine and get ready for some therapy. Carol

It's always a great experience to spend Thursday's w/ the quilting ladies at our church. (I'm the "youngest" by about 20 yrs!) And I have to miss all the summer days due to my job.
-- Today I got to sandwich a quilt w/ a 92 yr old who's specialty is quilts for veterans. She is very precise and will do something over until it's "right". She was teaching me and made me take some tied parts out--but she gave a reason for her insistence. emoticon
-- I feel blessed to be able to learn from the GREATS!

2Quilt: You are a quilting fool! LOL 70 quilts, that is a ton of time spent. I wish I could stand longer so I could cut out a whole quilt at a time, but alas I can't.

I cut and sewed 5 pillow cases last night, still have to serge the raw edges and will do that tonight.

I have my Halloween place mats all cut and ready to sew when I get back from vacation.

Usually I cut and sew but with the quilties I was trying to get them done before summer ends and the guild meets. I should have 70 done when I am finished.

Wow!! Twenty pillowcases, I am impressed. You are doing so well.

2Quilt, do you have cutting schedule and make up kits all at one time or do you cut and sew as you go? I have done things both ways and find it fun either way.

Hope everyone is having a joyful day. emoticon
